Who can see my personal notes?

Nobody but you! The personal notes are 100% private. If you want others to see what you wrote, you can export your personal notes and send the exported file to whoever you want.

Who can see my comments?

Once you add a comment in the Comments Space, everyone that watches the video (instructor + other learners) can see what you wrote.

In case you added an anonymous comment, everyone that watches the video (instructor + other learners) can see the content of our comment, but not your identity. Only the instructor will see who wrote this comment.

Who can reply to my comments?

Everyone. In the discussion that takes place in the Comments Space, everyone can reply to you - both the instructor and other learners. Feel free to reply to other users, as well.

‌Can I edit/ delete my personal notes and comments?

Yes! Anyone can edit/ delete a comment that he wrote in the Comments Space within 24 hours after it was written, unless someone already replied to the comment.

Instructors have the ability to delete comments made by others at any time (in case they are inappropriate).

Personal notes can always be deleted or edited (no time limitations on personal notes).

How do I add a new line in comments/notes/messages?

It is useful to format the message by adding new lines, for example, to add bullet points or ordered lists or just to start a new line of text.

Shift + Enter will add a new line

For bullet points, Shift + Enter opens the next bulleted line.

Clicking Shift + Enter twice will start another line in the comment with no bullet:

I'm getting an error when trying to play a video as a comment, why?

Once a video is recorded and uploaded, it takes a few seconds to process it. In case you try to play the video before the processing is over, you will get an error saying: "No source video was found - Entry in process". Like this:

Not to worry! Wait a bit and then play the video again.
